Nature Spirit by Maria Beadell

A trip to Canada inspired this piece. I was blown away by the awe and beauty and uncontrolled majesty of nature when traveling through the wilds of British Columbia, and this painting tries to combine these feelings into a mythical scene.

At the centre of the piece is ‘wolf-woman’—a symbol of wild, authentic femininity. She is emerging from the lake, from the depths of the Earth, from Gaia herself. She is beautiful and wise, her steely glare reminding us all that she is the boss, and we can tap into her energy when we need to.
